A Good Samaritan has been hailed as a hero after he wrestled a man to the ground who had attacked two elderly women in Brooklyn, New York City.

The two women, aged 77 and 79, had been shopping for groceries on Sunday morning when they were subjected to the unprovoked attack.

The incident was caught on CCTV, which shows the two women leave the grocery shop in Brownsville.

The footage shows her slamming head-first into the wall, and the man then steps up to her companion, and punches her too.
